Today's job market is more competitive than ever before. More and more jobs are requiring specialised skills and more than a years' experience.
With so many people applying for work, it can feel rather overwhelming the whole job search process.
What you put out in front of an employer are copies of your resume and cover letter.
Your resume will outline your skills, experience and education. It will summarise who you are and what you have to offer a prospective employer based on your work history. Usually CVs are about 4-5 pages long and an employer or recruiter will browse through this document to find out exactly what skills you have and experience that's relevant to their organisation and the requirements of the role. So really, the CV is an essential part of the job application process. Without it, you wont be able to go very far in today's job market.
Your cover letter takes the next step further by specifically explaining why an employer should hire you and what you have to offer for the role and their organisation. It will explain why you want the job too.
Most people can put together resumes and cover letters, since there are templates widely available for this activity. However, a CV is not just a CV. It's what you put in front of an employer. There are good CVs and there are bad CVs and cover letters. A good CV is one that markets and sells you to a prospective employer.
Writing about yourself in an influential and decisive manner is not easy. Which is why it makes sense to leave this to the experts.
